There's a new stream at WE. It will feature a program called Operation Migration. I'm sure some of you have heard of this before. It's where young Whooping Cranes are raised by 'human cranes' and then shown how and where to migrate. We've seen spots in the news with these young birds following the ultra light plane, well now we'll have a inside peek at what goes on daily. For right now the cam is on a holding pen where the cranes are being 'trained' to follow the plane south in the fall. You can find out all the information on the WE BLOG There are also links there to the official websites of this program. It looks to be a fascinating adventure, one which I'm looking forward to joining in.
